1. LB Tae Crowder

The Giants drafted Tae Crowder with the final pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. The last pick is usually dubbed "Mr. Irrelevant" but Crowder quickly proved to be relevant for a Giants defense desperately in need of physical linebackers. Over the course of three seasons in New York, Crowder racked up 232 tackles, 108 assists, two sacks, and two interceptions.

Crowder was slated to be the Giants third inside linebacker to start 2022, but after Darrian Beavers tore his ACL and Blake Martinez was shockingly released, Mr. Irrelevant ended up opening the season at the top of the depth chart.

Crowder briefly became Twitter famous after he delivered this massive hit to Titans running back Derrick Henry during the G-Men's stunning season-opening win at Tennessee last fall.

That hit was the lone bright spot of Crowder's season. Crowder struggled immensely last fall. PFF ranked Crowder's 2022 play as the 79th best among inside linebackers. There were only 81 qualified. After being benched late in the season, Crowder tweeted "Free Me." He apologized for his tweet, but the Giants decided to "free him" by waiving him.

The Georgia product really struggles to tackle and gets burned in coverage. He is still young so some team may opt to take a chance on him, but as of now, he is a free agent.
